I remember when I started working at the veterinary hospital for the first time as a freshman in college. I was a semi-assistant/kennel vet tech just getting my feet wet in the veterinary world. I was assigned to taking care of a sweet little parvo puppy in the isolation ward.
Let's just say I had no prior experience with parvo. I went to check on this precious puppy to find a HUGE puddle of the worst smelling diarrhea on the face of the planet. And these little cutie was half sitting in it and flinging it around the kennel with his tail. I immediately began dry heaving into the nearby trashcan.
Yes, I got over it. I had no choice! We are constantly bombarded by some serious stenches in our profession!
